Over 360 million people speak English as a first language, in fact it’s the official language in 67 countries and 27 non-sovereign entities. If you are not a native English speaker, launching a market research project, crafting a marketing campaign, recruiting top talent or drafting complex medical information for this huge audience can be daunting.
English editing enables professionals to make sure their text is accurate and optimised for their target market. An experienced native English-speaking editor will review the content so that it reads as it should for an English-speaking audience. They will typically review the spelling, grammar, style and tone, readability and use of terminology and cultural nuances. Editing a research piece for publication may also involve checking the right citation conventions have been applied.
Expert editing by a native English speaker will ensure that the final translations are accurate, unambiguous and suitable for your target market. This includes sense checking and ironing out any queries before it is translated, enabling you to not only prepare the file for translation but also providing you with a clean copy for the end client to sign off.
If you will be fielding in multiple English-speaking markets, such as the US, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India or South Africa, English editing in the form of localisation is the service for you.
